Janet and I attended President Sall's address yesterday at the Kennedy School
of Government. I liked his speech much more than Abdoulaye Wade's address
of several years ago. President Sall was down to earth and he seems to have some
solid plans for Senegal's economy and health systems. For example, he spoke
about his action to protect fishing rights of the Senegalese.

We are hopeful that President Sall will take equally solid steps to promote economic development in the southern part of Senegal, the Casamance, and resolve the conflict and violence which continues to stymie development and cause suffering. Our recent blog post (Feb. 18, 2013) showing two main roads in Senegal -- one near Dakar and one in the Casamance demonstrates vividly the need for the President's attention to this problem.
